We had offers much better offers elsewhere!" HEN former Ambassador Joseph E. Davies expressed doubt that a picture could be made of his "Mission to Moscow," Jack Warner had him meet Mike Cur-tiz, who was to direct. Curtiz is everything in mal-a-prop that Goldwyn is reputed to be. He brushed aside Davies' objections. "Xook," he said, "here is the way it wili go. We will open with a protocol under your arm Davies looked startled. Curtiz continued. "Then you will take out of the protocol some Jack Warner interrupted. "Listen, Mike," he said, "you can't open or close a protocol.

A pi-elude to the certain dawn A glow in back of misty skies A portent- in the midst of death A whisper in the tomb, "Arise!" A mark of hope against despair A stout plank in the mould and rot The human spirit at its best A voice that said again, "Fear not!" 1 A birth within a house of death A gleaming sword in farflung strife A thing of miracles and faith "The resurrection and the life!" A force that "never had a chance," "Consigned to doom before the start" And yet came through to victory, To triumph for the human heart. A group outnumbered, whipped and scorned A David transferred to the air An underdog through dismal years A fighter foreign to despair. A head all bloody but unbowed A figure scourged and crucified, A journey on Golgotha's road And raw red courage undenied. A gallant knight in armor thin A beacon light that never fades A symbol of the common man A spirit from the old Crusades.
